Professor of History

Charles Dellheim teaches European history and has published extensively on European cultural history and modern British history. In recent years, his work has focused on the role of Jews in modern culture. He is currently writing a book that provides an historical perspective on Nazi art looting by telling the story of a circle of art dealers, collectors, and critics who became pivotal figures in the art world. Dellheim has held fellowships from the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, the National Endowment for the Humanities, Harvard University, and the Littauer Foundation.
